Police to implement patrols for holiday

By Northern Star Staff

Police will crack down on drunk drivers with special patrols for St. Patrick’s Day.

Police suggested anyone at parties today should have a sober driver, and hosts should be mindful they may be liable if someone they serve is in a drunk-driving crash.

“Too often, St. Patrick’s Day can be a deadly and dangerous time on our roadways because of drunk driving,” said Lt. James McDougall, according to a news release.
